Oculus link suddenly stopped working correctly and crashing

Level 2

My oculus quest 1 has suddenly stopped working with link and it is bugging me. I was playing one day in steamvr and it just crashed to the quest home. Now it happens whenever I start up a game in general. The vr home menus on both oculus and steam work fine, its just the games that mess with it. 



  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti
  • Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-10750H CPU @ 2.60GHz
  • 16Gb DDR4 ram


  • Updated drivers
  • Restarted computer
  • Reinstalled oculus
  • Reinstalled steamvr
  • Reinstalled games
  • Restarted graphics card
  • Updated headset
  • USB 3.0 wire and port


... and it still doesn't work. Anyone think they can help me out here?

EDIT: I think that this was my cable as the end seemed twisted and when I used my power cable it actually worked. I'm gonna buy an official oculus cable next time, thanks!
